The project proposal submission deadline for Research and Experimentation Residencies in Montreal for Professional Artists from Emerging Countries or Regions is September 30, 2006. A new online application form is now available on our Web site and must be used by all individuals wishing to apply for this program. The Daniel Langlois Foundation offers this program in collaboration with OBORO, an artist-run centre in Montreal. Two residency grants will be offered to professional artists from emerging countries. These grants aim to help the successful applicants in their research, experiments and project development, while allowing them to work in a different environment than their region or country of origin.
